West Ham midfielder Declan Rice believes his side deserve to be in the race for a top-four finish.

The Hammers remain in the hunt for the Champions League spot despite losing 2-1 against League leaders

Manchester City

at Etihad Stadium.

Ruben Dias

scored his first Manchester City goal, but

West Ham

equalized just before the break as

Michail Antonio

converted from close range.

John Stones

regained City's lead in the 68th minute of the game with a striker's finish.

Hammers skipper Rice told West Ham TV

: “I thought you saw a different West Ham, one which was confident and really believed they could take it to City.

“They’re the bits there we need to brush up on and it’s so gutting to go there and not come away with a point. To have got three points would have been unbelievable but to not get at least a point was so unlucky.

“A year ago, we’d have a couple of games when we were good, then have games when we were poor, but now you can see our performances week in, week out – we’re leaving everything on the pitch.

“You saw Vlad Coufal at the end with his hands on his head and the lads were gutted in the changing room. Something’s really changed and things are improving.”
